Can you train for hypertrophy using rings and if yes how would you go about it?
Any implement can be used for hypertrophy. Having been around here a while I can tell you CT doesn’t discuss rings for hypertrophy because it’s not a tool he uses personally.
I would suggest using similar methods to how you normally train for hypertrophy.
Got quite a few ideas here…
CT actually posted some stuff years ago. So you can organize push / pull / legs or upper/lower or movement specific (cross work vs maltese vs. planche vs. levers etc.)
Straight arm do 5-10 sets of 3-10 second holds on the progressions (isometric)
Then do dynamic movements (versions of the above but pulls) 3-8 reps
“Heavy bodybudilign portion”
Finish off with basic dips/chins/row variations maybe with bands if you have them
You can use bands to spot your body on harder moves. Or get a pullet system attached (can do inverted cross / victorians).
Incredibly fun, tremendous pump. Enjoy the gains!
